During these last years, the economic activity centres are relatively well developed in Ivorian big cities. They have significantly moved from the countryside to the urban zones. Today, the focus of domestic activities is located in the urban zones and about 60 % of the population from that area lives from it. The category of actors working in the sector is essentially constituted of women. Coming from diverse backgrounds, they implement several types of activities (market gardens, low-lying ground for rice crops, cassava production and processing for “attieke”, cashew nuts processing into butter). Which allow them to better promote the social well-being, taking them out of that cycle of poverty and place the economies on the path to sustainable growth. Since many year, for not being left out, a group of women who form the Association “Chigata” in the city of Korhogo was part of this dynamic focused on the fight against poverty, by the extraction of Shea butter. However, the day-to-day practice of this activity is compromised by many difficulties: use of traditional and archaic tools, difficult exiting of products due to the absence of machinery and roads, the absence of farms, the absence of a reliable market, the absence of training and guidance. This situation threatens women and makes them even more vulnerable. The desire of the research was to analyse the strategies of women's work, the related obstacles and the appropriate ways to strengthen this sector. The study is in three parts. The first part underlines the methodology; the second one is about the processing steps of the cashew nuts into butter and the third one deals with the commercialization strategies and recommendations.
